Your day-by-day itinerary

Arrival in the Haa Valley

You’ll take a route to the Haa Valley through the highest road in Bhutan,  Chelila pass, which you’ll find marked with rows of colourful prayer flags. At over 3800 metres high, it’s often covered with snow even in the middle of spring! After crossing the pass you’ll begin to see the Haa Valley, the westernmost valley of Bhutan, bordering Tibet. From here, make a detour towards the oldest monastery in Bhutan, Kila Nunnery. Simply follow the trail leading towards the nunnery, your driver will pick you up at the end of the hike.

Arrival in the Haa Valley

The Haa River runs right through the valley and is surrounded by imposing mountain peaks. You’ll also see an Indian military base as you enter the valley, perhaps something of an eyesore in this otherwise pristine area. You’ll spend tonight in a traditional Bhutanese guest house in the town of Haa – after the groups visiting Haa valley on a day trip leave, you’ll have this beautiful place to yourself. The afternoon is free to take a walk through the valley. If you happen to be here in summer, hike up to one of the high passes surrounding the valley. You might be lucky to spot blue poppies, Bhutanese national flowers that bloom here in June and July.

Departure from the Haa Valley

Depending on your next destination you might have some time this morning to take a final stroll along the banks of the river and, in spring, the blooming rhododendrons and dense pine forests, with the mountain peaks of Tibet as your background. Then, it’s time to wave goodbye as you head onwards with your guide and driver.

“Bhutan felt like a fairy-tale to me; a land where the locals wear traditional dress and archery is practiced against a backdrop of green valleys and blue skies. Visit this country, and you’ll soon believe in legends.”
